“It is good news that we now have one million older workers. But the average age of retirement remains too low.

In an ageing society, and with the state pension age increasing, it is important for individuals and the economy that we increase the number of years we spend in the workforce.

Far too many people still leave the workforce too early, creating a huge drag on the economy. We must invest in improving the health of older people whilst also ensuring there is a supply of jobs to meet their needs. And we must ensure that discrimination does not act as a barrier to working longer. As our report last month highlighted, companies must do much more to innovate and adapt workplaces to meet the needs of an ageing society.”
